We wanted gifts that were from local folks. Handmade in the area. The shop was well stocked. There was a variety of items for sale. We purchased two pair of footwear. Slip on footies. Great gift items.

Berglind, her young women in the shop along with her family, manufactures some truly amazing and original Icelandic wool products. Definitely a positive experience and a shop worth visiting. A family run business I for sure will maintain in contact with.
